THE ZERO JAPAN STORY
An Ancient Tradition infused with modern design
Koji Inoue was working at a Japanese porcelain manufacturer when he first thought of creating his own range of teapots, now known as Zero Japan. In designing Zero Japan, Koji was driven by the Japanese pursuit of balance. All elements of the teapot range must work in harmony with each other.

The Lid
One of the most striking aspects to a Zero Japan teapot is its stainless steel lid. While it looks beautiful, Koji actually designed it to solve a problem for his mother after she accidentally broke the lid of her favourite teapot and could not replace it. The durable, stainless steel clip-on featured on all Zero Japan teapots allows the pot to be easily used with one hand as the lid and clipped on and will not fall off.

The Spout
The spout of every Zero Japan teapot is finished by hand, so each pour falls perfectly into your cup. The attention to detail is such that Koji himself hand-checks every pot.

The Infuser
A stainless steel infuser is suspended over the rim, which, after your first cup, keeps the tea leaves clear of the water to prevent over brewing, and ensures every cup of tea tastes as good as the first.

The Design and Colours
The beautiful colours of the Japanese markets are the inspiration behind the range of colours used in Zero Japan. With a choice of colours and a contemporary and stylish design, there is a teapot to suit all tastes and requirements.

The Process of Making the Teapots
The moulds for the Zero Japan range of teapots are all handcrafted. Once moulded, during the "greenware" stage, they are allowed to air dry before being placed into the prebake kiln. The second stage is called the "bisque firing" which takes place at 800 degrees celsius for 6 hours. Following this firing process the unglazed pots are checked and cleaned by experienced staff one by one.The glazing stage is a very precise process to ensure the thickness of the glaze and the colours are perfect. This stage is completed under the supervision of skilled artisans with over 25 years of experience.
